I have a question which I thought others may have some input on...
Normally by the end of any given day I would retire sore and exhausted, and laying down is what was needed to alleviate the pain, but recently I began waking early mornings with a horrific back ache.
This is totally different than my every day local lumbar pain. It spans across my entire lumbar region from side to side and the longer I lie there the worse it gets. By morning it takes everything I can muster to lift myself out of bed and walk around. Then after about an hour or so upright it pretty much goes away and I am left with my normal lumbar/sciatic aches and pains.
At first I thought it was a kidney infection so I had that checked out, but all was good in this respect. Now I am beginning to think it may be muscle atrophy seeing as I am very inactive due to increased pain when I do try and exercise. I am sure the fact that I am carrying a newly aquired extra 50lbs around my torso, which I can't get rid of for the very same reason, doesn't help either, but would this cause the pain to increase as I sleep? I would think just the opposite if anything.
Don't know what else would cause this, or why it cropped up all of the sudden. Does anyone else wake feeling worse than when they went to bed?
